Well I can certainly see how last year could have been overwhelming for you! Just went back and took another look at your photos and it definitely looks like a fulltime job for 8 or 10 set designers. You really outdid yourself! I have no idea where you'd even go from there.
Those villages can be deceptively time consuming. But nothing like a home haunt. And if you get in too deep it's a little easier to extricate yourself. Not quite as easy to just "stop" when you're vacuuforming walls.
Awww. What a nice response! I figured you might have a sock thing. Goes with the yarn hair. ;)
Well, you've got plans to go over! That's pretty huge right there! :) I always have a huge list and usually it's the thing I was working on when the TOTers showed up last year that gets done this year. Hope to do better this time around.
How's the hubby's take on Halloween. I seem to remember reading you'd enlisted him to build something for you. And I remember he wasn't available to help out...
They've done a fair bit of work at Heritage park. They've added some shops outside the gate and a fancy restaurant that gets pretty good reviews. We quite like the little midway rides they have there now - but I think they've been there for years. I think they added some kind of log ride at Calaway. It was supposed to be done last year but they never got it finished.
We actually had perfect weather for Halloween this year. Couldn't have been better. But the day after we go snow - normally we...
Still looking. Always looking. Haven't found anything that I really enjoy or that pays what I'd like, but it does help burn off the calories.
Beakerhead is a little weird. I think it's in September but it's kind of a series of events in scattered around the city. I don't know if it's the kind of thing I'd make a special trip for. The Octopus showed up at a few different locations around the city. Mostly tiny little street fairs. Don't know if it'll be back this year or not. The event is...
This is my favourite thing from Beakerhead last year (check out the video in the first post). We also went to the catapult competition which was pretty fun although not as awesome as it sounds.
Beakerhead is a festival started up by Jay Ingram...the guy from the Discovery Channel. Yeah it's kind of science and engineering meet art. Pretty hipster.
Thanks for the photo comments. Did you check the Beetlejuice video? I was really proud of his movement even though it was a bit of a fluke. We just use the old exacto knife and keep a vacuum very close by. I do use a hot knife for cutting the large shape, but I don't think I'm steady enough to use it for the detail work.
Ugh. Foot surgery does not sound pleasant. But you sound ready to get back in the saddle.
Congrats on the Dayhome. That sounds like a great solution and it's definitely an occupation with some serious job security.
Not much planned for this year. If we had unlimited time and finances, I'd probably try to do some kind of Disney theme. Maybe add the which from Snow White, the little devils (like my avatar) from Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, maybe some hitchhiking ghosts. But as it stands we'll...
No real stories to tell here. Lost a bit of weight and trying to get back running but that's the extent of the excitement! OH, and I don't know if you remember but we finally sold my parents house. So that's an end to that particular chapter of the drama.
Just starting to thing about Halloween, but probably won't actually get started until September. How about yourself?s
